Goose hunting

Postby dun » Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:55 am

Don;t know when the season opens but based on the solid stream of geese pouring over here all night there should be a helluva supply of geese south of us.

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Geese are a major pest, I've had to eliminate a bunch this year.

Flight birds going over here on Friday and early Saturday. Some places got up to 18" of snow north of us, and that helped to move birds. I deer hunted Saturday PM in fog and rain at 34 F. Hundreds of black geese landed in an open field next to me and stayed all afternoon. They would get up, fly around the field. and then land again after a rifle shot.

What is the best thing to keep exterior scope lens from fogging up during soupy weather?

Geese are a major pest around here also. I've never eaten goose, how is it to eat? Seems like there'd be a lot of meat on one.

I like them cooked in a browning bag with a wire rack inside the back so the fat doesn;t soak into the back. Stuff them with a couple of different kinds of apples and bake away. Same thing I do with ducks. Some good eating.

It seems rare these days around here for someone to hunt them, much less eat them. Ducks is a whole nother story.

Keep it and yourself in the house where it's warm, windless, and dry.

Virtually everyone on the Washington coast uses those flip up scope covers. i think they are made by Butler Creek? They work but are not 100%. The last elk I shot I had them closed because it was drizzling. I opened them up, shot the elk and right about them the skies opened up. Got down within 30 yards of the elk and he stood up. Flipped up the scope covers and all I could see was fog. Luckily he only went about 30 yards and fell over.

I've tried about every one of the anti fog preps. Just seem to make it worse. Rain-ex was about the only thing that work at all.

We are not in the flyway but seems like when I was a kid we would hear them flying over during the night. Maybe they still do and my house is insulated enough that I don't hear them. Growing up we could have thrown a goose through the wall it was so thin.
